The purpose of these online Zoom-based Introduction to Stewarding workshops is to bring new stewards to understand the basics of their work and role within their union.
This three-hour workshop will give new stewards an introduction to the following topics:
• The Duty of Fair Representation, under which stewards and the unions operate
• What are the roles of stewards in general?
• The six W’s/getting the facts
• Basic grievance writing
Because this is a shortened version of the Introduction to Stewarding workshop offered by CUPE Education Branch, it cannot be used as a prerequisite for participation and attendance in workshops from the Steward Learning Series. Participants will not receive a certificate of completion for CUPE’s Introduction to Stewarding.
Materials will be sent to your home address - please provide your home mailing address when registering. Please register as early as possible to ensure receipt of materials.
Please have a copy of your collective agreement available for reference.
SPACE IS LIMITED TO 25 PARTICIPANTS
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST ENTER AN INDIVIDUAL EMAIL ADDRESS FOR EVERY REGISTRATION SO YOU CAN RECEIVE THE WEBINAR LINK INFORMATION BEFORE THE WORKSHOP
In response to the health concerns of our members and staff, CUPE has implemented a Scent-Free Policy at all of our workshops. Scented products such as hair spray, perfume and deodorant can trigger reactions such as respiratory distress and headaches. Facilitators and participants are asked to refrain from using scented products while attending our workshops and meetings. Thank you for your cooperation.
